Rookie Dean Kremer’s season ends on sour note in Orioles' 9-1 loss to Red Sox

A promising September for Orioles rookie Dean Kremer ended on a sour note as the young starting pitcher didn’t survive the third inning in a 9-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

Kremer, who debuted with three at-times dominant starts this month, was hit early and often Wednesday as Jackie Bradley Jr. and Kevin Plawecki drove in runs in a two-run first inning. He settled in for a scoreless second, but was drummed for six runs in a third inning that dragged on and never got better.

With one run in, Kremer got a visit from pitching coach Doug Brocail and assistant athletic trainer Patrick Wesley to look at what appeared to be an issue with a finger on Kremer’s pitching hand.
